Helping Students Overcome Their Fear of Writing

Helping Students Overcome Their Fear of Writing | Ideas for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Most students in my developmental writing classes claim they “hate” writing. It’s a familiar refrain. But, it is less about “hate” and more about a lack of preparation in the subject area. They do not have sufficient experience with the writing process in order to understand what to do. It is not until they gain this experience and realize for themselves what is wrong and what is right with their own work will their writing improve. This personal realization has to happen. It is key to neutralizing their fear and boosting their confidence.

Seven Keys to Effective Feedback

Seven Keys to Effective Feedback | Ideas for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The term feedback is often used to describe all kinds of comments made after the fact, including advice, praise, and evaluation. But none of these are feedback, strictly speaking. Basically, feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.

Lauren Anstey's insight:

Providing effective feedback can be tricky but is so valuable in helping students work towards their learning goals. This article makes helpful distinctions between feedback, advice, and praise.

Beyond the Lecturing Debate

Beyond the Lecturing Debate | Ideas for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We often hear only the pro- and anti- positions in debates about lecturing. I want to advocate a more nuanced perspective."Some who lecture do so on occasion and on purpose. Others lecture as if lecturing were synonymous with teaching. They Lecture. Unreflectively, regularly, and at length"

Lauren Anstey's insight:

Let's be reflective about the value of lecturing as a pedagogical strategy - both as a means to question its purpose and defend it's value.

Reading Circles Get Students to Do the Reading

Reading Circles Get Students to Do the Reading | Ideas for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In my course, the required reading is intensive and extensive.Yet research shows that on any given day and for any given assignment, 20 to 30 percent of the students have done the reading. Given these realities, I decided to revisit Literature Circles - small, peer-led discussion groups whose members have chosen to read the same text. Basic educators have found them enormously successful. I wondered whether they might work in my undergraduate course..

Lauren Anstey's insight:

A possible teaching strategy for those faced with heavy course reading lists, poor levels of preparation before class and/or those desiring to create a community of learners around their course readings.

Using Pinterest in Higher Ed

This Pinterest board is a place to collect ideas on how to use Pinterest constructively in an academic higher ed environment. The following questions are focused on: What is Pinterest being used for? How is Pinterest being used as a educational tool to foster learning and critical thinking skills?

A literature review on "what it means to be a sustainable university with a sustainable curriculum by looking at case studies from other higher education institutions in order to begin to give guidelines for such an endeavour"

Lauren Anstey's insight:

What does it mean for a university to be sustainable? Further yet, how do we prepare sustainable students? This article explores sustainability in higher education from institution to curriculum.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 7, 2013 2:48 PM

The United Nations (UN) constituted 2005–2014 as the decade for educational sustainable development when bridges have to be built between academic institutions and their communities. In this article I will therefore do a literature search from 2005–2011 on what it means to be a sustainable university with a sustainable curriculum by looking at case studies from other higher education institutions in order to begin to give guidelines for such an endeavour in an open and distance learning (ODL) institution. Thereafter I will focus on recommendations on how to transform present study material into a green curriculum by using a qualification in Human Settlements as a case study.

The Online Discussion Board: Opening the Gateway to New Learning | Ideas for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In the online instructional environment, the discussion questions, posts, and responses are the lifeblood of the course. The discussion board expands and contracts, or breathes with the relevancy of the question to the course, current events, and experiences of the faculty and students. The challenge facing faculty is how to create discussion questions or statement topics that keep students involved and engaged.
